Welcome to ChemBAM!

We are currently restructuring the website…. please bear with us!

We are a group of chemistry researchers who are keen to share our work through a range of resources and interactive activities. This website is under construction but eventually we hope to be open to all age groups and abilities. To read more about us, follow this link.

Chemistry is a hugely important subject and chemistry researchers are tackling some of the biggest challenges facing our world. If you’d rather get going on some activities, head to our list of experiments.

The website is currently edited by chemists Nicola Rogers and Zoe Schnepp, with many contributions from a whole host of scientists.

Global Challenges

The world’s population is expected to exceed 9 billion by 2050, and our planet faces many global challenges. The sciences, and Chemistry in particular, play an important role in many of the global  issues below, affecting our daily lives, the future of technology and our standards of living.  More information on the role of Chemistry in tackling global challenges can be found on the Royal Society of Chemistry website.

Individuals, communities, companies and nations all have a role to play in tackling inter-connected global challenges, in order to provide every person across the globe with water, food, energy, healthcare, and a home. Chemists play an important part in this, and  are developing new technologies to address many of these issues, from water purification materials to new batteries and solar cells.
